Zentangle Weekly Challenge #70: Color Me Sepia



This week theme at I am the Diva Zentangle is Color me Sepia. I had already anticipated the challenge a week ahead by doing the Week #69 challenge "Groovy" in all sepia! I had to come up with something different, and Zentangle color challenges usually lend themselves to much creativity.

Recently, I have been working on making little journals using various formats and materials. For this challenge, I created a 2 1/2" by 2 1/2 square coptic journal. The covers of the journal are made of thin wood (probably balsa). I distressed the wood first and then drew a ZIA in sepia. I added a touch of white around the sepia with Dr. Martin's Bleed Proof White, which added some pop to the brown.









Thanks for visiting.

  3. What a treat to see not only the gorgeous tangles on the medium of a journal but to see the journal. The wood complements the sepia so well!
